SANE webserver down
The SANE main server www.mostang.com (=ftp.mostang.com = panda.mostang.com) has lost its network connection because of the excite@home cable network shutdown since 2001-12-01. It can take some days to get it online again. News about the status will be posted to: http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/ (http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/). A mirror of the FTP server is: ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/hci/sane/ (ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/hci/sane/).

SANE has switched IP's as of Mar. 12th 2001, and DNS is not updated yet. The IP of the webserver is 24.1.107.201, but if you want it to work (it calls images by domain names that don't exist), add these two hosts to your /etc/hosts file:

24.1.107.201 panda.mostang.com

24.1.107.201 www.mostang.com

There's a mirror of the source here at http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/hci/sane/ (http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/hci/sane/) that worked for me, and another at ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/misc/device/scsi/scanner/sane (ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/misc/device/scsi/scanner/sane) that I did not try. Good Luck.

mostang.com (which seems to be the homepage for SANE,
has been down (and not in DNS) since at least saturday early.

Cached mail archives indicate that my problem compiling v1.00 can be solved by using 1.01, but I haven't found
any cache or mirrors of that distro.

If there is a new home for SANE, or if someone has a copy
> 1.00 they can put up and send me the url, I would greatly
appreciate it.

rpms needed
there would be great if someone out there could provide some binaries for this app, since me(and, according to the people writing in the sane mailing list) and a bunch of other people can't get the source code compiled.

Take a look at WinSANE (http://www.sunshinecomputing.com/winsane) if you need to scan pictures to a Win32 desktop from a SANE networked scanner.
